NCTCOG ECONOMIC RESILIENCE AND RECOVERY TRAINING

Local businesses, whether large or small, are an integral part of the economic success of the community. Statistically 40% to 60% of small businesses never reopen after a disaster, and of those that do, 25% will close within 2 years. Less than 25% of Fortune 500 companies could be considered capable of successfully managing a corporate crisis.

How prepared is your company to survive a disaster and how prepared is your jurisdiction to support an economic recovery?

This free program will discuss the challenges of economic recovery often seen after disasters, and how businesses, in collaboration with their local governmental partners, can build economic resilience and develop strategies to better survive catastrophic events.
